Brookings Innovation Center
Brookings Innovation Center

The Brookings Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art facility featuring modern and innovative architecture that truly makes it a sight-to-see.  We are connected to Interstate 29 and the Highway 14 bypass, allowing us to be easily accessible to those inside and outside of the community.  

The most important part of the location is our proximity to South Dakota State University.  This proximity to the University provides unique benefits for companies to access campus facilities and equipment. More importantly it allows for collaboration with the faculty and human capital by way of the graduate and undergraduate students.
